My pc is incapacitated. I looked through my antivirus vault and saw that it
had detected trojan horse clicker.AAWS three times and took various actions
i.e. moved to vault...

Current status:

Can't run anitvirus. Can't access internet. Have read some of the threads
here and have tried to down load MRT onto clean pc to transfer to infected
computer. File transfer is in progress--> MRT extracting in process (running
file from a memory stick).

Specs:
Compac pc running Windows XP Service Pack 3
AVG antivirus 8.0

Question: What are next steps if I can't upload MRT on the pc?

Thank you

Updated status:
Was able to open the MRT onto the infected pc in safe mode. Full scan was
selected and within seconds of starting the scan, the dialogue box
disappeared. Opened the box several more times to run the full scan to have
the same thing occur--even tried it with the quick scan--same thing
happened--box disappeared. Cannot run a virus scan in safe mode either, still
cannot access internet either, when IE is selected a window flashes on the
screen and disappears.

Still unable to perform a scan or access internet. Clicker trojan was
detected August 31, 2009. Not sure if this is still afflicting the computer,
I suspect it is as are others.

Thank you

MS PCSafety provides home users (only) with no-charge support in dealing
with malware infections such as viruses, spyware (including unwanted
software), and adware.
https://support.microsoft.com/oas/de...prid=7552&st=1

Otherwise, run a /thorough/ check for hijackware, including posting the
requested logs in an appropriate forum.

If these procedures look too complex - and there is no shame in admitting
this isn't your cup of tea - take the machine to a local, reputable and

After the software is updated, it is suggested scanning the system in Safe
Mode.
<http://www.superantispyware.com/>
SUPERAntiSpyware just put up a Online Safe Scan at
<http://www.superantispyware.com/onlinescan.html>
if you cannot install and/or run the current SUPERAntiSpyware product due to
an infection.



Let us know what hªppens.

If you are comfortable working inside a PC, take the drive out and using a
usb adapter (like this one
http://www.kingwin.com/products/cate...s/usi_2535.asp),
scan and clean the drive on another computer. Be sure the autoplay feature
is turned off on the computer being used to scan the drive. Use several
anti-spyware programs as all of them have strengths and weaknesses.
Hopefully by using several, the weakness of one will be offset by the
strength of another.

Hi there, I tried to install the Superantispywear software. During
installation I got a message--The System Administrator has set policies to
prevent this installation. I tried uploading application in safe mode from a
flash drive.

Thank you
